WSJ Now Getting Article Ideas from WKRP in Cincinnati?


It sure looks like it. From yesterday’s WSJ:

How much alcohol does it take to get intoxicated?

And here’s the WKRP episode where the highway patrol tests Johnny Fever’s reaction time as he consumes more and more alcohol. Same as the WSJ, no?

The opening scene sets the stage, but fast forward toward the end where Johnny’s reaction time gets faster the more alcohol he consumes. One of the best moments on TV, if you ask me.

I can only hope that the WSJ’s next article answers the question, “Can a turkey fly?”
